Dan Artery was attacked by three Boston terriers that were under the care of Frank Jones and Amy Bates. Artery brought an action against Jones and Bates for injures he sustained during the attack. During trial, Jones admitted one hundred percent liability for the injuries, and the district court dismissed Bates as a defendant. The jury then awarded Artery damages in the amount of $13,059. The district court thereafter ordered Jones to pay Artery's costs. Jones appealed a portion of the awarded costs. The Supreme Court affirmed in part and reversed in part, holding that the district court abused its discretion in awarded costs for witness subpoena service fees for an earlier vacated trial because the original trial date was vacated by the district court on its own motion.
